What is the Merkaba?
In order to explain what the Merkaba is, we must first explain the general the flow of energy and energy fields that surround the human body. The first definition refers to the Prana or Chi - This is the Life force. This unseen energy exists everywhere in the universe in great quantities. Prana enters the body through the top of our head (this is the reason there is a hole in the skull of unborn embryos). The major Prana flow runs through the center of our body looking like a tube. From there it flows into eight main centers known as Chakras. This is an Indian Sanskrit word meaning "turning wheel", due to the look of these complex energy flows.
From the "Chakras" we have branched energetic lines (meridians) that reach every cell in our body. We have a Prana field that surrounds our body as a result of the meridians and the Prana flow. Then there is the field of the aura. The auric field is an egg- shaped energy field that surrounds our body and changes its color according to our thoughts, feelings and emotions. After the auric field we have hundreds of electromagnetic fields. These fields have precise geometrical shapes. Each one of them is made up of three identical fields with the same size and shape.
The Prana fields consist of the star tetrahedron, a three dimensional Star of David. A person is able to rotate two of the three star tetrahedron fields in opposite directions by using the ancient Prana breathing technique, thus creating a huge 17- meter energy field - our light body, the Merkaba.
Merkaba for healing and balance
The varieties of benefits of using the Merkaba are greatly varied:
It is a most powerful healing and protection tool. By utilizing the ancient Prana breathing technique, we are able to restore the Prana flow through the pineal gland at the center of our brain. The Merkaba balances and revives the activities between the two sides of our brain. Such training strengthens our sensitivities and mental abilities, (at this time we use only 5-10% of our brain). The Merkaba assists us in our spiritual growth .It connects us with our higher self (i.e. ourselves on a higher level of consciousness).
The Merkaba enables us to feel unconditional love, thus healing ourselves as well as others. It gives us the possibility of creating any kind of harmonious reality we desire. The Merkaba is also a tool that can be used to transcend into other dimensions. Revived studies and practices of the Merkaba are emerging all over the world after so many years of being suppressed from different sources, including the Old Testament, Kabala and even the traditional Tarot cards.
